The Inver Hills Community College-Metropolitan State University Interdisciplinary Community Garden is located behind Heritage Hall on the south side of the Inver Hills campus. Established in spring 2012, the garden is maintained by students, faculty, staff and community members, and generates produce for local community food shelves, as well as for individual students and community members who grow produce for personal use in reserved plots.
What's happening in the garden
- We're almost full for the 2013 growing season! If you would like to be added to our
waiting list, or if you would like to apply for a free plot through the Garden to
Table program, please fill out an application here.
- Gardeners work on site during the growing season Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to noon and Saturdays from noon to 2 p.m. All are invited to drop by, pick up a shovel and share in this community service! Gardens are messy places; please wear sturdy shoes and dress accordingly.
How to get involved
Residents of St. Paul, Inver Grove Heights and surrounding areas are invited each
winter to submit applications to grow food as a community or reserve a space for personal
use in the garden. Individual plots are 10 feet by 10 feet, and are available on a
first-come, first-served basis, with priority going to students enrolled at Inver
Hills and Metro State.
If you would like to donate to the community garden fund, you may do so via the Inver
Hills Foundation at give.inverhills.edu. Thank you for your support!
